PiYo Week 1 Update - Women's Progress and Meal Plan

Week 1 of PiYo is officially in the bag!!  I'll be honest, I wasn't really sure what to expect...AT ALL!  I am really used to more of the cardio, fast paced type workouts.  So the thought of slowing it down and not doing the jumping and high cardio made me nervous.  However...I really like the change of pace and I know it will be great for flexibility and strength.  I always seem to get these small little injuries and I am really hoping that this will be a great solution for those and make me stronger and more flexible!!

So what does week 1 look like?

Day 1 - Monday
This is the Fundamentals, a 40 minute workout that is very much so a teaching workout.  It explains and breaks down your moves and exercises in the program and teaches you how to perfect these moves to get the best results possible.

Day 2 - Define Lower Body (25 min).  This will make your legs shake by the end of the workout!!

Day 4 - Sweat!!  (35 min)...this is a more fast paced yoga flowing workout with a bit more cardio.  It uses body weight resistance strength training and you will feel this the next day...I was surprised how much I sweat in this workout.

Day 5 - REST!!

Day 6- Define Lower Body

Day 7- Define Upper Body - I'll be honest, I like having a rest day on Sunday, so, this will be a challenge for me but I'll make it happen!

As I was looking over the meal plan for Piyo, I really like it.  I think it will be a great fit.  I'm thinking I will probably incorporate Piyo meal plan with the 21 Day Fix containers to keep my portion sizes in check.  That's my biggest struggle are portions (as I'm sure many of you can relate).

I'm really needing to get focused back on my nutrition.  I was on vacation for 2 weeks with limited availability to the normal foods I eat, so I had to improvise.  And honestly, it took me about a week to get back into my normal eating.  So...I'm back on track and here's what my week looked like for meals.

First I had to determine my calorie range and I am right at 1200 calories for weight loss.  This is approximate, so if I fall within 200 calories of my target I will consider that a success!  So this means that I will have Plan A for target of 1200-1399 calories.

Here's what I'll be eating for my target range:

4 Servings: Primary Vegetables
2 Servings: Secondary Vegetables & Grains
2 Servings: Fresh Fruit
4 Servings: Lean Protein
3 Servings: Healthy Fats

Here is my menu for the week.  Planning the first one always seems to take me a little bit of time, but once you have the layout of it then it's really easy to substitute different foods in and out.  Feel free to use this meal plan as your own and adjust it as you see fit!

I'm working on trying to vary my meals a bit more.  I tend to eat the same thing ALL the time.  I would like to get to where I am changing it up a bit and adding more of a variety of foods into my menu.  I think my body responds better to the variety and I like the taste of variety!

Please let me know if you have any questions about the meal plan or if you need any help!
